The fountain is one of those places that has it all. Whether you are there for one of the delicious menu specialties or a yummy dessert or for an after work drink, this place has true charm. The atmosphere is always upbeat and the food is always delicious. Don't be fooled into thinking that because it has a to-die-for ice... More

If you visit St. Louis you have to make sure you stop in at the Fountain for a meal & dessert. The seating is extremely limited which is really the only con, but that doesn't detract from the overall atmosphere. The decor is hand painted and wonderfully eclectic and the staff is always friendly. I can't just pick one favorite... More

I was looking forward to a sweet treat after Pappy's BBQ. The reviews were great and always like dining in a historical building. Got there at 3pm and there was a 20 minute wait. But, there were 2 possible tables available. There was a set of 2 tables for 2 side by side, I asked the not friendly hostess if... More

Had lunch here today with my husband while our kids went the the Fox with their grandparents. Loved the atmosphere and were amused by the Soap Hospital audio playing at our booth. I was intrigued by the dill pickle soup and was not disappointed - it was very good. I also enjoyed the Cuban sandwich, though they forgot to leave... More

Pulled up TA and hit the near me now button when working near downtown St. Louis. The Fountain on Locust came up and a review mentioning soup and grilled cheese caught my eye on a 20 degree day. First, the building and decor is unique. It used to be a Stutz Car Showroom and reminds you of something out of... More

While in town again, I brought more of my family members here for dessert. We were delighted with the Banana Split and the seasonal ice cream called snowflake, I think.

This is a great little place, whether you want a good simple soup and sandwich before you head to the Symphony, or you're craving a wicked ice cream dessert after a show at the Fox. The art deco room with its beautiful bar and painted ceilings feels like a speakeasy and is worth the visit. The owner will welcome you... More

Had the Grilled Cheese& Turkey with a cup of sweet potato soup. Other members of the party had the red beans and rice and the dill pickle soup. All were excellent choices. Don't leave with out having some ice cream or sundae.
